Protecting Private Property

The last clause in the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, “nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” This is the provision used to defend the use of eminent domain laws, in which the government seizes private property without the consent of the owner, in order to serve some public purpose. Railroads, interstate highways, and other projects that require large swaths of land are frequently cited as justifications for the law, as it is unlikely that they could have completed—at least not without a significantly higher cost—if private land owners could simply refuse to sell to the government, regardless of the offered price.

Capitol Comment

Time's Up

It’s time to send a serious message. Not just to the politicians in DC, but also the moneyed interests behind the scenes, the powerful trade groups, the economically ignorant, and those who would rather feed off the productive than produce themselves. Time’s Up.

Let My Appliance Go: Rethinking Government Efficiency Standards

While Washington’s political elites use popular buzzwords like government “efficiency” standards, these are only an attempt to place a positive spin on expensive regulations. In their recent plan, the Obama White House proposed even higher efficiency standards. While increasing the Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) appliance efficiency standards sound promising, the policy is riddled with problems.

Why NSA’s “Metadata” Collection Should Disturb You

There is much confusion about the NSA’s secret surveillance program Prism. It doesn’t record the content of all of our private phone and other digital communications. Rather, it stores so-called “metadata” about them for future reference, in perpetuity. By its own admission, the federal government is collecting massive amounts of ‘metadata’ on every single American.
